Equipment and function

The pictures shown are sample photos. The actual appearance of the equipment features and their specific attachment to the product may differ from the pictorial representations, but will have the same functionality.

Powerful 5.6kW high-performance saw

Thanks to its very powerful 5.6 kW (7.6 hp) engine, the STIHL MS 780 high-performance petrol-driven chainsaw is ideal for professional harvesting of thick timber in forestry.

The STIHL ElastoStart special starter handle makes starting the chainsaw much easier. All functions, such as cold start, warm start, operation and shutdown, can be controlled comfortably and safely with the single-lever control, so that your right hand can always remain on the handle. If kickback occurs, the QuickStop Super chain brake brings the saw chain to a standstill in seconds.

The STIHL Ematic system with controlled-delivery oil pump delivers chain lubricant just where it is needed and can reduce oil consumption by up to 50%.

Other features and benefits of the STIHL MS 780 petrol-driven chainsaw:

  • compensator for reduced maintenance work, as the engine output remains constant for a long time even as the air filter becomes more heavily soiled
  • manual decompression so noticeably less pulling force is required on the starter cord, as the decompression valve allows part of the compressed mixture to escape
  • STIHL anti-vibration system for noticeably less vibration and less fatigue when working
  • side-mounted chain tensioning for easy and safe chain retensioning
  • tool-free tank caps for quick and easy manual opening and closing
  • double metal bumper spikes for safe and precise chainsaw guidance
